Bears Select EDGE Dominique Robinson with the 174th Pick in the NFL Draft

The Chicago Bears finally made a pick after multiple trades in the fifth round. They added on defense with a linebacker. But perhaps a secret weapon on offense?

The Chicago Bears took EDGE Dominique Robinson from Miami (Ohio) with their second fifth-round pick.

After maneuvering through multiple trades, Ryan Poles landed pick 174. The Bears ultimately got to this point by trading pick 150 to the Texans for picks 166 and 207. Then, they flipped pick 166 to the Bengals for 174 and 226.

Nevertheless, Robinson checks in at 6-foot-5 and 253 pounds. Interestingly, he played at WR at Miami (OH) during his first two years, logging 452 yards on 27 receptions with four TDs. He then switched to LB and logged 37 total tackles (11 for a loss) and 6.5 sacks in his last two years there.

Now, he hopes to help the Bears defense bringing versatility as a pass rusher and linebacker. Maybe he could even line up on offense for possible trick plays? The world of possibilities are endless.
